Very well preserved piece of history and architecture. Great for walk around the forts and in the attached small garden. Perfect view of the city as a bonus.

The Petersberg Zitadelle shows us the history of the city and the country. It's a beautiful place with a great view of the city.

Here you have a perfect view over the city and on top of the zitadelle, there is a small park, perfect for a nice picnic or just to hang around. Beautiful atmosphere at sunset time.

You can walk or drive to this location. We walked and it was so worth it with all the views of Erfurt. The short time that we spent here was not enough. Definitely going back to do more exploring.
